McNamee's meeting with prosecutors delayed

McNamee's meeting with prosecutors delayed

Brian McNamee's meeting with federal prosecutors investigating whether baseball great Roger Clemens lied to the U.S. Congress has been delayed.
The pitcher's former personal trainer had been set to meet in Washington on Tuesday with prosecutors preparing the grand jury case against Clemens, the seven-time Major League Baseball pitcher of the year who denied under oath last year that he used illegal performance-enhancing drugs.
McNamee's meeting likely will prepare him for giving grand jury testimony, where McNamee will repeat his allegations that he injected Clemens more than a dozen times with steroids and HGH from 1998-01.
"It's just not happening immediately," Richard Emery, one of McNamee's lawyers, said. "It's going to happen soon."
McNamee and convicted steroids distributor Kirk Radomski should be among the primary witnesses against Clemens. McNamee last year provided government agents with syringes his lawyers said would link Clemens to drug use.
Clemens repeatedly has denied using illegal performance enhancers.
